SWE Stadtwerke Erfurt GmbH: Technical innovation, customer focus and social commitment

With the solving of global challenges the energy and public utility industry stands at the focus of public perception. Re­­sponsible use of resources, sensible linking of economy and ecology as well as long-term, purposeful goal-orientation towards future development in the economy and in society determine the entrepreneurial profile of the “Stadt­­werke Erfurt Gruppe” (SWE – public utility company group in Erfurt).

With its 22 enterprises and other involve­ments the SWE is one of the largest employers in the state capital. The group of companies distinguish­es it­­self in the primary fields of elec­tricity and energy, natural gas, water and dis­trict heating through a technical performance parameter at the highest level as well as through a highly motivated workforce. The group of companies po­­sitions itself as a mo­­d­ern and powerful service provider with its waste re­­moval, traffic and parking sections, its bath houses and the “egapark”, one of the lar­­gest facilities of its kind in Ger­­many.

The clients, also in future, are positioned at the centre of all economic activities – their satisfaction with services and offers of the departments and their iden­­tification with the group of companies as their communal service provider.
